I like the way it shows examples of impolite behavior, then shows what its results can be, and then shows how to ask for the same things politely. ( )

In D.W. The Big Boss, D.W., who is Arthur' little sister, gets in this bossy mood. She is complaining to everyone and telling them they are doing everything all wrong. Then the next day, when she thought everything would be back to normal her whole family was almost ignoring her. Her dad hadn't cooked breakfest, her mom wasn't dressed for thier playdate, and Arthur wouldn't read to her. This book is very useful to children because it shows how attitude can effect the way people treat you. The very end of the story, D.W. says "sorry" to everyone and everyone starts being sweet to her again. A website that would be very useful to a classroom would be http://pbskids.org/arthur/ and it all all the Arthur character's as well. ( )
